Are premium defenders worth investing in from FPL Gameweek 9 onwards?

With clean sheets on the increase and the average number of goals scored in each game lower now than it was at the start of the season premium defenders are back on the radar of Fantasy Premier League managers.

Is now the right time to invest more money in the defence? Should we be looking to go big at the back? And which FPL defenders should we spend our FPL budget on – we asked the Scout Network for their thoughts on what is the correct defensive FPL strategy.

Ben Chilwell playing for Chelsea against Sheffield United

At the moment, I can’t see any real logic in going big at the back – which surprises me considering I felt this was a very viable strategy after the first few weeks of the season.

Chilwell looks a must. He’s now risen to £6.0m, but looks worth the price. The double up with Reece James looks very viable, and you can get him for a cut price £5.0m.

With players such as Vladimir Coufal and Arthur Masuaku (both £4.5m), Tariq Lamptey (£4.7m), Matt Targett (£4.5m) all presenting good value, those with the likes of Trent Alexander Arnold (£7.4m) and Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) must be looking at this and thinking that they can free up some real funds to jump on Manchester City and / or Manchester United players who now have a great run of games.

While I will continue to shirk premium defenders, Joao Cancelo (£5.4m) has caught my eye – and I’m looking at Alex Telles (£5.5m) too, depending on the results of Luke Shaw‘s (£4.9m) most recent injury. Both could offer good returns for their price

Chances diagram from Ted Talks FPL – Statistics from the last 6 Gameweeks

As always with defenders, picking the players with the best combined clean sheet & attacking return potential is key.

In the chance diagram above, the top 10 players are presented for each type of chance in the last six Gameweeks. Small Chances are difficult efforts such as shots from outside the box or speculative headed attempts. Big chances are clear-cut opportunities, typically close to goal. The names that stand out are in two or more of the categories.

The Liverpool fullbacks are always pretty good statistically but a potential calf injury to Alexander-Arnold may be the final nail in the coffin for patient owners, especially as this may further reduce Liverpool’s clean sheet potential. Robertson may also suffer from Liverpool’s formation change. With Diogo Jota (£6.5m) making more starts, the left-back has been less inclined to maraud forward. This makes me wonder whether the ££7.0m+ price tag still offers good value.

Ben Chilwell’s popularity has risen over the last few weeks along with his price (£6.0m). 11 small chances created, five small chances and one big chance shows a good level of intent and diversity. Two goals and two assists in five games is his reward.

Along with Chelsea’s heightened clean sheet potential, he seems like the primary choice for our backlines. At £1.0m less, team-mate Reece James (£5.0m) is also showing a good level of intent with six Small Chances Created and five small Chances.

He will need to start adding clear-cut opportunities to his locker along with end-product, having refrained from returning attacking points since Gameweek 1.

James might have nailed down a regular starting position after playing 90 mins in the last 3 Gameweeks but Cesar Azpilicueta (£5.8m) always feels like something of a threat when it comes to rotation.

With West Ham’s recent defensive solidity, Aaron Cresswell (£5.1m) also stands out as decent mid-priced option. His team-mates Masuaku and Coufal may offer better value at £4.5m but 13 small Chances Created and two big chances created for the left-sided centre-back is certainly worth taking note of.

Sergio Reguilón (£5.6m) and Cancelo are the last of our premium options. The Spurs left-back has created small chances, been afforded six small chances and fashioned two big chances in the last six Gameweeks but the fixtures are about to get extremely tough. Is he still worth it?

Having started the last four Premier League games in a row for Man City, combined with some European rests, Cancelo seems to have claimed the left-back position for himself.

He is showing promise going forward and with City’s excellent run of fixtures from Gameweek 10, the clean sheets are likely to follow too. He looks most likely to be my replacement for Alexander-Arnold, if the injury is serious.

With regards to structure, I think three at the back is still the best, leaving seven attacking slots to lap up the prevalent attacking points. There’s an argument to say that those three defensive positions could be filled by mid-priced assets such as Chilwell, Cancelo and Cresswell.

Aaron Cresswell in action for West Ham

Defenders have been a key thinking point of mine over the last couple of Gameweeks. My latest Pro Pundit article, which comes out later this week, is all about restructuring to allow for an increased budget allocation to the defence.

The last few Gameweeks have seen fewer goals scored across the weekends and an increase on the number of clean sheets kept. We are also now beginning to see more consistency at the back, especially from teams such as Southampton and Chelsea and therefore the appeal of their defenders is on the increase.

Chilwell and Cresswell are the obvious defensive picks for me for the foreseeable future. Both have the form, fixtures and huge potential upside for attacking returns and thus at their price points offer exceptional value for money.

Vestergaard celebrates Scoring with Theo Walcott for Southampton vs Chelsea

I feel defenders are one of the toughest positions to call so far this season.

With so few clean sheets at the start of the campaign, we can at least now see some more filtering through. I was debating between Kurt Zouma (£5.3m) and Chilwell ahead of last Gameweek, and with the sale of Danny Ings (£8.4m), I was able to up my budget to afford the left-back.

Luckily, it paid off, but I still believe that Zouma and his cheaper counter colleague James, could be worth consideration if you can’t reach the ever rising Chilwell or you fancy the double up.

I still have a Romain Saïss (£5.2m) shaped problem, and I also have to have some serious thought on if Robertson is worth keeping going forward. The Defenders I’m looking at as key targets for possible replacements are, Jannik Vestergaard (£4.7m) who currently has four clean sheets and two goals.

After selling Southampton defence early doors, I am looking to get back on as their clean sheets really hurts my rank, so any cover there would be good.

I also think West Ham defence could be worth some consideration. Cresswell, with his three assists, has looked impressive and it usually reflects in the bonus points also. As a cheaper alternative, Coufal at 4.5m also looks like a decent option, with just one fewer assist than his left-sided, set-piece-taking team-mate.

Patrick Van Aanholt celebrates Crystal Palace’s opening goal vs Leeds in Gameweek 8

Currently I still have Robertson and Alexander-Arnold. The main reason I still have both is because I couldn’t identify which one to offload. My indecision may help me in the long run though, as with Liverpool’s fixtures clearing up, I can still see both hitting form at some point soon.

The player I want however, is Patrick van Aanholt (£5.4m). Watching the games it seems like he’s added some real threat and penetration down the left for Palace. He had a great assist ruled out last week, as well as being fouled for the overturned penalty. This week his deflected cross caused the own goal and Palace have a great run of fixtures that I think will result in more points for PVA. We also don’t know if he jumps ahead of Wilfried Zaha (£7.4m) in the penalty taking queue, which would increase his potential even more.

Heat Map for Chilwell’s season so far by El Statto

With only six defenders currently in the top 30 highest scored players, currently it makes sense I feel to continue to allocate as much as possible budget into the midfielders and forwards. Also with the top premiums of Alexander-Arnold and Robertson both outside the top 50 it gives you more money than ever to use.

If I was Wildcarding over the international break, Chilwell would be the first name into my defence. After missing the first three games, he has since returned three clean sheets, two assists and two goals in five appearances, and is averaging eight points per match.

With a good run of fixtures against mid-to-lower positioned teams, I think you can expect some returns to continue. As he showed against Sheffield United, Chilwell will get into the box whenever he can, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see him on the score sheet again over the next six.

He was on corners, but now Ziyech is in the side and taken over it is one assist option gone, but the way he has started this season is very Alexander-Arnold-esque.

Cancelo stars for City as Sheff Utd's weak right-side bodes well for Chelsea

Joao Cancelo puts in a cross for Manchester City while under pressure

With the current sample of eight Gameweeks, Chilwell is the most reliable and explosive defender in our view. With his marauding runs on the left and how often he gets in the penalty box, as well as his crossing capacity, should be a no brainer for all managers. A Wildcard draft should start from him leading the defence.

With the current lack of clean sheets for Liverpool, and the drought of attacking returns for both Robertson and Alexander-Arnold, it is hard to advocate for sticking with them, even though the underlying stats remain strong.

However, at FPL Greece, we consider having a big-hitting defender a big plus. Not only due to team structure (since upgrading a defender is difficult and usually requires hits), but also because historically, very few midfielders or attachers at the price range of £7.0 to £7.5m hit the mark of 180+ points. Neither of them will keep underperforming for the whole season.

Nevertheless, if one would move away from Liverpool defence, Cancelo keeps turning heads with his performances. He looks like he has secured his spot in Guardiola’s starting XI, his assist potential is high considering the number of crosses and his heat-map, and City’s schedule past Chelsea bodes well with his clean sheet potential.

That aside, it is hard to look past the favourable schedule of Aston Villa and the good defensive credentials they have given. Either as a cover, or as a double up to the amazing Emi Martinez (£4.8m), either of Tyrone Mings (£5.2m), or Matt Targett (£4.5m) would be a good be a solid choice.

Leeds defender Stuart Dallas

My wildcard in Gameweek 6 was focused on taking money out of defence to secure the services of more of the midfielders and strikers who seem to be getting consistent returns. The clean sheets have started to come in thick and fast but there are so many budget defenders capable of attacking returns like Lamptey, Cresswell, Max Kilman (£4.3m), Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.5m), Stuart Dallas (£4.5m), Luke Ayling (£4.5m) – the list goes on. I have one mid/premium which is Chilwell who is widely backed as the next, or equivalent, TAA/Robbo.

Whats happening in the Scout Network?

El Statto

There were two new articles published this this week.

The first one highlighting the 26 players who furfill our own pre-set criteria (returns in at least three games/ a least one haul so far/ played at least 75% of the mins) Looking at what makes them good transfer options and then factoring in their fixtures.

The other article was by Jan Sienkiewicz, following their surprise defeat in Europe this week he takes a look at what is going on at Manchester United, whether the wheels are coming off the Ole-bus and whether his decisions are effecting the appeal of the Red Devils players as FPL assets.

FPL Family

Lee and Sam both had excellent Gameweek 8 results, although Sam spent Sunday evenings Live Stream regretting her decision to bench Ollie Watkins when he scored a brace while they were live!

Lee also appeared on last weeks Official FPL podcast in the build up to Gameweek 8, while you’ll be able to catch Sam on the FPL Show this week alongside Duncan Alexander.

Mini League Mate

Last week Mini League Mate had a special trial week for a select group of Fantasy Football Scout Members who received a Dossier for Gameweek 7 to enable them to try out the service Mini League Mate provides.

As a result many have FFS Members have subsequently subscribed to carry on recieving the Dossier moving forwards! The trial also provided Mini League Mate with some great feedback including lots of suggestions for how FFS Members would like to visualise their data – this is something that the guys at Mini League Mate will be looking into for the next few weeks and looking to deploy where possible.

FPL Poker Player

The usually weekly FPL Poker Tables blog was published this week ahead of the deadline for Gameweek 8. This blog reported on very encouraging results for the previous gameweek’s predictions, and highlighted the key points of interest regarding the upcoming GW5 scoreline predictions, clean sheet probabilities, expected goals and player points.

Exitingly spreadsheet sales for FPL Poker Player also went global with customers now from all around the world, including Indonesia, Slovenia, Malaysia, India, and Ireland. The development of a new sortable players expected points table was announced. As well as this, the betting arm spinoff account recorded a 25% Return On Investment in Gameweek 4, with three winning bets out of the four recommended to followers.

FPL BlackBox

On Wednesday ahead of the Gameweek 8 deadline Mark and Az hosted another episode of FPL BlackBox looking ahead to the game week and focused in on, amongst other things, the data surrounding the choice between Harry Kane and Heung-min Son for the Gameweek 8 captaincy.

      Can get either one for GW11
      Option A) 3-5-2
      Martinez

      Salah Bruno Grealish Zaha KDB
      Brewster DCL Bamford

        Top one - we know Zaha is fit (for now)

      2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        B because I think 343 is the way to go and don't trust Zaha.
        Would have preferred A if it had someone like Ziyech instead of Zaha

      3. Bennyboy1907
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Zaha has great fixtures until gW12 which he can be moved to a Chelsea midfielder? Will have enough ITB

        • Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          So it basically boils down to Zaha vs Antonio/Wilson. Tbh there is not much between those two options, probably A since Zaha has the higher ceiling compared to Antonio/Wilson.

        (Repost as I'm an idiot)
        Which looks better going forward?

        1) Cresswell + 4.5 def (KWP maybe)

        Which of these defences would you prefer long term on WC?

        A) McCarthy in goal, Play 1 of Coufal/KWP/Kilman every week
        B) Martinez in goal, Play 1 of Lamptey/Coufal every week

        1. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          B so you don't need to double up on Southampton with A at any point.

          1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            True, worth noting though that Coufal,Kilman,KWP rotate perfectly so the double-up will only be for great fixtures.

              • 6 Years

              Either are good options tbh, just eggs in basket comes to mind
              Which option costs less?

              1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 6 days ago

                B is more expensive but only by 0.1

                1. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…
                  • 6 Years
                  2 months, 6 days ago

                  swings and roundabouts really, mentioned below Targett is a good option with option A

        2. Ze_Austin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          I like A a lot more if you take Targett over KWP

          1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            That's true, only thing though is that the keeper will play every week so that's important and Martinez fixtures are way better than McCarthy...

            1. Ze_Austin

          Not perfectly but Lamptey and Coufal rotate pretty well till GW21

        2. Bennyboy1907
            2 months, 6 days ago

            Coufal and Lamptey look good

          • caldracula
            • 4 Years

            Coufal and Lampety for the next six looks ok.

        3. Arfaish

          Who is more of a must Bruno or KDB:

          Martinez, (£4m)
          Chilwell, Reguilon, Lamptey, (Justin, Mitchell)
          Salah, J. Rod, Grealish, Ziyech, Son,
          Kane, DCL, (Brew)

          A) Son, Reguilon > Bruno, Coufal

            Bruno till City start firing
            i'd move Hamez out for Bruno though and maybe keep Son for KDB

            1. Arfaish
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 6 days ago

              Hamez has a lovely three fixtures up next and would require me to either move Kane for a budget forwards or lose Grealish to fund the additional £1.5m as well

          4. Arfaish
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            Sorry should have mentioned that the KDB option is for a -4

          Thoughts on these moves over the next 2/3 weeks:

          GW9) Ferguson --- Cresswell / James

          GW10) Robbo + Son --- Lamptey / Coufal + KDB

          1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔

          How many captaincy points per week do you aim for? For example, an 8 pointer from your captain every week will give you 608 total captain points.

            • 4 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            I'll take any kind of return usually unless the popular choice really exploded...
            I would happily take 608 captain points without thinking twice

            That is a fair target. I am currently on 144 captain points which equates to 9 per gw. Would love to carry this on all season

            Happy with at least one attacking return from captain pick

            Doesn't really matter what to aim for, but if you want to feed it into some kind of formula then I'd say a good return for a top player over the course of the season is about 250 points? So 230/38 = 6.5 points more than reasonable.

            Any return - have a pretty much 50% success rate the last 46 GWs

          Quick one - what is everyone's team value right now?

          Mine's 102.2 right now with some money set to be lost on Hamez and DCL when I get rid in the next couple of gameweeks.

          Trying to gauge where on the bell curve this fits.

            101.9 me but I’ve carded and put all the players in early that I think could double rise before deadline..quite a few are due so I’m hopeful by next gameweek I’ll be around 103 if all goes well?

              Could you tell me those players?
              I'm also on WC and was thinking Jota,Ziyech etc.

                If you look at fpl statistics (search on google) that'll give you some info on player price movements i think.

                  You are correct. It’s defo a good guide but by no means entirely accurate. Especially for drops imo.. that’s what I use though

                Yes of course. Some have already risen though and I’m not saying all will rise twice, but even if they rise once and I keep, then that’s fine...The ones I targeted early have been DCL Ziyech Lamptey Grealish Watkins Bamford Cancelo Bruno Zouma and I ditched Mitchell and Trent before imminent drops. All apart from Bruno (who will), Lamptey and Cancelo have risen early so here’s hoping for another rise to be quids in..

                99.4 doesn’t really matter, is correct at this stage, but long term I think it will matter. Good luck though..

                  Although you’re in free fall. 425000 to almost 2 millionth.. get your wildcard done quick...jump on the imminent rises and get rid of the deadwood such as Mitrovic?

                  the handful of replies here will be skewed towards the higher values. Yours is 0.5 above average I would guess.

                    The skew is real. But at least this way I can figure out what the upper limit is...!

                  According to Fix, the average for the top 1k is 102.0. I think the average here might be a bit higher because many here are very interested in maximising team value and are willing to take some hits/play an early WC to build it up.

                    That's because the top 1k are interested in next weeks points not last weeks points! 🙂

                      It’s also refreshing to see someone with such a good history languishing around 1.5 millionth.. must be one of those seasons so far I guess.. still plenty of time to get up there for both of us..

                        Az is very loyal to his players. I think that doesn't work well if the GW1 template is not very good, which it hasn't been for the last two seasons. In such cases, managers who ditch the failed GW1 template early will do better, as long as they make smart choices for their replacement players.

                        Managers are accustomed to treating the GW1 template with the same kind of respect that they treat the template at other times. But the GW1 template has not been subjected to the relentless pressures of natural selection, so to say, like the later template has. Once Darwin has been at work for a few generations (gameweeks), then you have an organism (template) better adapted to its environment (new season).

                  I don't really get it when people start boasting about how big theres is compared to others. Its not what you've got but how you use it that counts...

                  Or maybe thats just cos I've got a small one that I think like that...

                    Well, if many have more and are able to use that extra well, it is serious issues for those who have less. Or do you disagree?

                  103.4 My sales value is 1.3 less though. I have now sold Hames (net win .2 million) and Son (+.3). Tbh I would prefer higher OR.

                  It would always be better to have players when they haul and own them instead of being forced to transfer them in afterwards. But it is still better to have low or with decent sv instead of having low OR and low sv (or tv). SV isn't irrelevant, having 1-2 million extra in defense for example means points in future.

                        B: adding up "squad value" and "in the bank"

                      DCL+Watkins/Bamford if you want to enable a heavy midfield

                      Otherwise DCL+Vardy

                      DCL Vardy, possibly Watkins but I'd imagine you'll have Grealish.

                      Regardless of affordability? Vardy and Kane easily.

                    Are people that are bringing in KDB not worried about a possible injury given his recent record and with the amount of games coming up for club and country? also factor in city's current form. Personally would rather have Bruno and the extra cash.

                      2 months, 6 days ago

                      KDB's current form: 6 assists and one pen missed in 4 games

                        Disingenuous to count UCL form. Very different beast at the moment.

                        Bruno's form: 5 Goals and 3 assists in 6 games, 0 missed pens. Also one mill cheaper and less of a potential injury concern.

                          You mentioned City's form without KDB's form, now you mention Bruno's form without Man U's form

                          If you're factoring in City's form without factoring in Man U's form, it's a bit flawed, right?

                          As for EPL form in the two games since KDB's return from injury: KDB with two assists and a pen missed, Bruno with two goals and an assist. I mention the penalty miss because of the massive swing of points between a scored pen and a missed one. Way more than just "big chance missed", due to negative points, 5 points not gotten for the goal, and bonus points that come with goals

                          Both Man U and Man City have been stuttering form-wise, with various factors contributing to both

                          For the record, I prefer having both KDB and Bruno. I was just addressing the logic of "City's form" when comparing a City asset with two returns in two starts to a Man U asset with three returns in two starts, both playing for clubs that aren't impressing in their usual ways at the moment

                            I didn’t see anything in your post that mentioned team form, just KDB’S. my post was just to state I preferred Bruno and the extra cash.

                            Oh and them at I think he’s at risk of injury due to the amount of games and the injuries he’s had recently, I did mention city’s form but that wasn’t meant with as much emphasis over the first two points.

                      If it's an either or situation then KdB might as well be dead to us. Bruno is remarkably consistent, will do as well and costs a whole million cheaper

                      Your mileage may vary in relation to shorter runs of games of course.

                      No Silva, no Sane, No Aguero, Bernardo not really firing, bit of a gloom over city right now. Hardly that worrying

                      I'd go with the below. They'd concede a lot of goals though.

                      Schmeichel
                      TAA, Coady, Thiago (Silva), Robertson
                      Barnes, Thiago, De Bruyne, Rashford
                      Vardy Jimenez

                    Wow I'm shocked to see KDB is -72.1 on FPLStatistics and still falling, we reckon he drops before start of next GW?
                    Would absolutely love to have him at 11.4 on WC

                      Weird. Maybe some people decided he'll lose penalties after the miss?

                        I think so or they just looked at the points and saw it as another blank?
                        He would probably be on for a double rise if he converted the penalty lol

                        That miss was very reminiscent of the KdB of 2015-18 when he was pretty poor in front of goal (relative to the rest of his game). He totally found his shooting boots in 2019/20. Whether that continues to be seen in future returns of whether he loses confidence in front of goal will be interesting to monitor

                      Digne though. Relieved of set pieces much of the time, so little goal threat. I got rid. An assist here and there can't carry a 6ml defender

                    What is everyone seeing in Soucek that I'm not?

                    I want Bruno in moving forward and can do this for free by having Soucek as my 4th mid, but can someone explain to me why he seems so popular here?

                      Cheap 4th mid, depends on the structure of the team really.

                      I know the pen was a disaster but is their more an argument for lookman vs soucek?

                        • 3 Years
                        2 months, 6 days ago

                        Lookman seem to be Soucek's chief rival at the price point. Has promising stats but no much data to go on yet. Be interesting to see if that penalty miss effects his confidence in the short term. Also WHU are clearly a better team than Fulham and Soucek is pretty integral to the way that they play. Is Lookman a nailed on starter? Hard to imagine much rotation for Soucek.

                        1. Antonionio
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          2 months, 6 days ago

                          Yeah I had a think about Lookman too, but ultimately I decided that Fulham simply aren't a good enough team to warrant investment no matter how decent the individual appears to be.

                    4. Bojam
                      • 3 Years
                      2 months, 6 days ago

                      Look at his stats from last season. He scored 3 goals in 1039 mins = approx 1 goal every 4 games played. If he could maintain that rate over a full season then you'd be looking at 9-10 goals. So far this season he's only scored once. But West Ham's fixtures have been as tricky (on paper) as you could imagine. First "easy" fixture - last weekend versus Fulham - and he pops up with a goal. He gets into the box a lot and is very threatening. Great header of the ball - so a big threat from set peices - and shoots well too. Can also assist the odd goal and obviously gets a point when WHU keep a clean sheet (they've been good defensively so far this season).

                      For 4.9m that seems like a proper bargain. Whether he can deliver on the promise remains to be seen. But you'll struggle to find another midfielder at that price who offers anything similar. Can be a fourth mid - especially during easier fixture runs - and definitely a great fifth mid as a substitute or rotation option if you can afford the 0.4m over the likes of Bissouma etc.

                        This is helpful, thanks.

                        I haven't watched a lot of West Ham post-lockdown so a lot of the things about his positioning in the box, at set pieces, etc has just flown right over my head.

                        At that price point nobody particularly appeals to be honest, so for 4.9m may well be worth the punt if it facilitates getting Bruno in.

                        The other option would be Ziyech and Zaha instead of Bruno and Soucek

                        1. Bojam
                          • 3 Years

                          Soucek has been first sub for me all season. He came into my team for 2 points in GW7 (when Rodriguez was injured). Last GW he scored 9 points but remained on the bench. A bit annoying but I have 7 other mids/fwds who are more offensive IRL, more expensive and have higher points ceilings. Ollie Watkins is the cheapest of them but he's not benchable given the hatrick vs Liverpool. With a brace vs Arsenal he comfortably outscored Soucek in GW8 = the right call.

                          So, unless I have injuries, Soucek will be a sub. But I'd rather have him on the bench capable of delivering decent scores if needed than a 4.4/4.5m mid like Riedewald or Bissouma, who are very unlikely to deliver more than 2 or 3 points. I just have to accept that there will be occasions when he gets a goal or assist and those points stay on the bench. In these crazy times, I think a strong bench is valuable.

                          For you would he be in the team week-in-week-out? Sounds like it if the alternative to him and Bruno is Ziyech and Zaha (neither of whom are benchable). If that's the case then I think it is close to call. Bruno may well outscore Ziyech but Zaha will very likely outscore Soucek over the season. That said, in the short-term WHU's fixtures look pretty decent and maybe Soucek will deliver some more returns in the coming weeks.

                      First to 3 and I pull the trigger.

                      For GW9 only:

                      A) KWP (wol) & Barkley (BRI)

                      B) Targett (BRI) & Podence (sou)

                      Bearing in mind Barkley plays deeper in a 4-3-3 against the lesser teams, not a 4-2-3-1

                        Both look awful tbh.

                          Essentially I transfer Grealish in for either Barkley or Podence, and get a 4.5m defender for Trent (already have Martinez so can only get Targett if Barkley goes)

                        Who do you prefer, and why (price not an issue) ?
                        A) Ziyech
                        B) Grealish

                          Grealish, marginally.

                          Talisman, cheaper, fixtures and seems to be involved in everything.
